New grips

I decided my little Bauer .25 needed a set of fancy grips, so I made up some laminated abalone stocks for it. I think they go well with the polished slide and small parts.

Very cool looking. I'm curious, how do you laminate mop?

Well, I don't- but I can explain how it's done.
Very thin sheets of mother of pearl are laminated onto a phenolic backing. The clear acrylic plastic lens is then laminate on top of the pearl. This gives you a very beautiful and durable material.
